You’d think that after the editors at Ebony saw our 2004 cover with Bishop T.D. Jakes, they would have said, “No way. Can’t be done better. That is the Bishop Jakes cover. We have to find someone else.” But no. They went ahead and put him on their April cover. I like what he’s doing with the beard there. Taking a page out of Zac Crain’s playbook. Here’s the full press release from Ebony:

Bishop T.D. Jakes – mega church founder and pastor, New York Times best-selling author, global humanitarian, film producer, TV and radio host, conference leader, and spiritual adviser – graces the cover of EBONY magazine’s April issue. The publication offers readers 175 tips on how to transform their life.

Known internationally for his sermons on spirituality and transformation, Jakes shares with EBONY readers his secrets to achieving innermost desires, and provides tips from his new book, Instinct: The Power to Unleash Your Inborn Drive, scheduled for release in early May.

“Success is accomplished when you know your purpose and accomplish things you were put on this earth to do,” said Jakes when discussing his keys to success.

In the article, Jakes continues, “Instinct is something you sense; it’s just there in you. He added, “…I have had the privilege of being close to [people] who have done exceptional things. They accomplished great feats not because of intellect, but instinct.”
